[Music] yo hey what's up John mmm can't complain we want pretty fairy so you probably remember that we did a crossover around Halloween about Darkstalkers right yeah might be getting old but it's not like I suffer from short-term memory loss well I was wondering if you want to do a crossover about the animated series what the anime yeah I mean it was a bit flawed and it
00:36
had Donovan with some sort of superhero but for the most part it wasn't that bad I mean yeah we'll be talking about that a little bit but mostly all talking about the other dorks tacos are the main series no there is no other animated series based on Darkstalkers I'm not sure what you're talking about Nolan I'm sure dosing American one not really talks about it though hello alpha seven
01:08
nine five five seven three I'm initiating reeducation protocols remember the oath no one must be allowed to witness that atrocity again understood I'm enacting nothing personal ferryman but I'm afraid you're gonna have to take a little nap well it's freaking rude didn't want to do the review Michael it just said so geez it might be hard to believe today but
02:02
with a pray big deal wing it came out at all was captain's follow up the street player to so there were lots of eyes on you at the time the game was reasonably popular and it spawned two sequels the first of them itself spawned two animated adaptations one from Japan and one from America let's explore Japan's effort first night warriors has a full episode OVA that tries to capture the spirit of the game well inventing a story to wrap all at least most of its
02:34
characters into the proceedings in some kind of natural way the results of shall we say mixed night will use actually looks really good when it's animated there was a decent budget behind this thing the characters all look great and matched her in-game Camelot the animation is pretty good in the fight scenes too although there are some condos cut here and there like most anime the show also has a nice dark toning its setting and backgrounds until
03:04
the final two episodes which actually do a good job of using light to highlight a lot of attention to detail in the architecture of the towns was oval 97 it's actually pretty darn good looking has a bit of character however hustle has its fair share of problems first not all characters get focused on fan favorites like Donovan CN Co Felicia boy gang and Dimitri all get decent screen time even if falesha's is mostly filler and quit so anti wrong end up being the antagonist of the show which works what
03:37
doesn't work as well as Donovan as the primary protagonist don't get me wrong on cable Donovan seems like a good choice he's a hot vampire that's trying to mentor a rama ties little girl while staving off his dark side that touch of humanity makes him instantly more relatable than the rest of the cast however Donovan is boring he just walks around fighting Darkstalkers well
04:08
hoping that they kill him because of his tainted blood the girl Anita should be interesting with with past trauma but just isn't the show gives us the impression that they had the potential to bring out the best in each other and give them both reasonable live but never entirely makes good on that the standard view like you never really relate with Donovan in any way which makes it impossible to cheer mine as he ends up facing the threats that would wipe out humanity that humanity is really worth
04:39
saving in this thing my voice portrayal humankind is less than flattering the human race is slowly starving to death as a perpetual night has descended on the planet because of this they blame the Darkstalkers for the play which of course they aren't the cause of but hey scapegoats make everyone feel better basically everyone lives in a medieval-style society which makes sense considering they are trying to invoke the fear of the dark ages that being said CN codesys pimps around their 20th century clawed and then super science is
05:11
proud to fight wit so at the end of the series so the setting is kind of port is all I'm saying still compare the other video game adaptations of its day Darkstalkers night warriors Darkstalkers revenge whether they want to call this particular version of it it changes names like with every release um happens to be not half bad really uh-huh the setting and story itself is really nothing special but at least the fight
05:42
scenes are good and very energetic and well animated and the characters will bring character more than I can say of America's attempt do--it stalkers is the 13 episode cartoon created for syndication in 1995 apparently the production staff had high hopes work with June Ida Capcom's director of licensing saying that quote it's this decades answer to the popular Ghostbusters sensation of the 80s
06:14
itis on did you actually watching this thing before you actually ran your mouth on that one because I don't anyway giving a half saying human being could take a look at this and think it's even a half-decent kids cut to let a little the next pop culture phenomenon first things first the show is visually retching the characters especially the faces just look awful ugly it's not that they are unfaithful to their in-game design it's just the animations - you didn't care enough to actually make
06:46
those designs look good the fight scenes are awful nothing ever feels impactful and some of the effects look outright embarrassing okay yeah I know it's low-hanging fruit I pick on this thing's visuals but let's face it most cartoons from this era just didn't look very good especially the video game based ones look like all kinds of ass however this thing is like eight iceberg of crap and if you go beneath the water
07:18
elm we get bigger and stinkier so question time who do you think should be the protagonist of this show maybe Demetria Morgan possibly Donovan asiento how about John taliban's no no and no no it's 92 which could work considering you know kids show it's not Riku it's not sasquatch it's not Victor it's not Felicia give up yet if you said self into a kid that wasn't mentioned in the original games like anyway
07:50
thing I'm so sorry you've already witnessed this abomination I offer you my sympathies yep we got snot nosed kid who looks way older than he actually is what sounds by the way meet Harry he's a computer nerd that's at the center of Merlin some house so he can occasionally use magic when the plot demands it and if you've ever seen a clip tune with a little kid as a protagonist you know immediately how this goes everyone else friend and focusing incompetent jackass
08:23
or either don't kill the little nuisance when they have a chance of relying him to notice something completely obvious or use his Deus Ex magic huh to beat the bad guys on slum right even as kids we did not come here to watch this little twerp we came here to see monsters fighting each other that's what Darkstalkers is this isn't hard the game's cast of memorable characters gets split into two groups
08:53
the good guys and the bad guys because heaven forbid we have a diverse cast with Roman agenda what motivations nope we have good monsters versus bad monsters Alicia basically stays with Harry the entire showing is nowhere near as cute and bubbly as her in-game self she also sucks and gets her tail kicked in every bite because of course she does don't worry Felicia I still love you also on team good it's Victor whose back story is completely absent CN Co who
09:24
shows up for two episodes and whose sisters barely mentioned Donovan who gets two episodes with Anita being Jesse oh that damsel in distress and the final one as always apparently not half vampire in this just for extra betrayal we till amazingly just shows up in one episode nearly kills pie wrong is never smoking up again Riku is regulated to freaky fish guy that looks surprisingly handsome Jong is just an idiot who eats people because why not and then the Sasquatch which they call Bigfoot all
09:55
freaking show how did you manage to get everything wrong on team evil Pyrrha is the BBG which books in the law except instead of being an ultra powerful abomination from the far reaches of space he is a weakling here I assign his minions to do everything I'll focus if I help out they butcher him lay though his minions consist of wood Raptor who aside from the concert rock and roll puns is actually pretty faithful Aang is voiced
10:26
by Dinobot from Beast Wars just for extra awesome and I Kara's whose character can be summarized as crazy idiot be shaman who is barely in the show was otherwise fairly accurate and the absolute worst things about the show the Metreon morgan as the ineffective black evil that's right Dimitri the tittle of vampire from the game series originally called BAMF I own Japan and Morgan not
10:57
only the serious single most recognizable characters but one of the most recognizable characters in video games especially fighting video games regulated to being pirates bitches Morgan herself it's just a microcosm with everything wrong about this looking is a succubus and sex appeal is a defining characteristic for good or ill she's powerful flirtatious sultry and
11:28
most of all bored with the world she lives in that's why she fights to find some excitement to pass the time with like it or not this is Morgan's entire character sure it's a touch shallow but for a fighting game from the 90s that's all that was really needed Knight will use for all its flaws nails her character perfectly even who rivalry with Dmitry is handled well with her flirting with the vampire even during a serious fight the ox dog does the animated series here has a huge problem
11:58
it's a cartoon aimed at kids that makes it super tough to adapt to literal sex teaming I know but they didn't even attempt it she never flirts with friend the other character which I know they can doing a kid showing instead of having a mutual respect for each other's pal and fighting skill logging in to meet readjust bicker like children the entire time once all hood the finding character traits are stripped away all that's left is a boy unremarkable actually ugly bit villain who treatment
12:30
all of the characters this is pretty much inexcusable hanging over the hem of this point home we're gonna look at a single episode to prove my point and that's it episode 13 which is ironically the last one of the series hye-ryung whose goal is to enslaving humanity is supposed to be your intimidating main villain is terrified that he's receiving a visit from his big brother we ask all the heroes to pretend to be his subjects they stupidly agree to this
13:01
instead of trying to use the situation to rid themselves of their alien menace and hold a banquet for Byron I wish I was making that name up things go tits up when he tries to eat Harry which let's face it would be the way he deserved to die hang everyone teens up to try to overpower by ron shipp in forces they feeling up pretty much immediately captured even pie ron which goes down without even a fight and it's up to Harry to install a computer virus into the computer by using his leet hacks or
13:31
skills of slamming a glowing cartridge into a panel repeatedly then by one chip is teleport onto some kind of dinosaur planet and pie Ron thinks Harry profusely for all this help before claiming he'll resume his attempts to conquer earth tomorrow the end so who comes out looking good in this episode not the heroes who agree the pie Ron's playing without hesitation gang look like idiots from not expecting a travel a double-cross no looking for ready to get ripped I wrong in the confusion the
14:04
villains don't take advance of the situation to betray pirate lore the heroes and come off as Pyro's spineless to these tiring himself acts like a pathetic child not that bad ass would be overlords of the human race and all here he does is hide and slam a cartridge into a control panel so he looks like a tool too so even when you throw out the lack of respect for the source material there's really nothing redeeming and Darkstalkers writing is drivel the characters are just inoffensive at
14:35
passing annoying at worst the puns oh god the puns the action is absolutely reprehensible the animation isn't good the sound work isn't anything special and it isn't even funny to riff on there's really absolutely nothing here for any potential viewer Anna Kate oh hi John [Music] [Music]
15:46
